Old Yoga Mat

My old, worn Yoga mat

Slippery in familiar places

years of

practice and prana

intention and energy

an old friend…

propped in the corner now

a “backup”

I roll it out today and it feels like Home

Follow the Call…

Follow the Call…

Listen for the whispers…

Don’t wait for “screams”

Step onto the path…

Wisdom of the journey.

The journey started long ago…

Stop thinking…Slow down

Allow your Soul

To Catch up…

Take the journey…you will not be misled.

Night Mantras…

Roses or Stones

Paralyzed by thoughts.

Fear and Doubt are blinding.

Have I made the wrong choices?

A single Raven waits for me to choose… again…

Waits for me to get up again…and move forward.

A path of Roses or a path of Stones.

How does one choose?

Roses have thorns.

Stones will hurt the feet…

No matter which path…there is a chance I will get hurt.

Moving Forward is the only choice left.

Rise up.

Inner guidance spreads its wings…and follows me.

The Muse

Inner Fire

Blazing a path to my creative soul…

Inspiration comes…and lingers…

Like a forgotten song waiting for me

To remember it.

I place my bare feet onto the Earth

And follow…

The Muse.

Sliver of Light…

The way is uncertain…

I get in my own way

And now I am blocking yours…

How do I  soften these thoughts

and enter the flow???

Reveal to me what I most need to know…

I protect my heart and mind from intruders

Although… you are someone I trust…

Help me see again

Help me trust again…

Help me  let go of ideas that blind me

Even if its only a sliver of light that sneaks behind my blindfold…

Help me let my guard down…

Let me journey with you…

September Morn…Messages

 

An old song flashed in my mind

As I move towards new beginnings…

A new season…a new age…

Keep dancing…

“until the night becomes a brand new day”

Just look at what has been growing.

It is harvest time.

You are a tree rooted between worlds.

Drink in the abundance.

Fill the cup until it is overflowing…

And then,

Ask for more

Being Reiki

Entering the Flow.

Connected…

Yet… I let go.

For a moment

I AM not aware

of where my hands end

and her head begins.

Reiki.

Expansive and Vibrating

Yet…Still.  Quiet and Present

Right here.

Right now…

Allowing the mysterious to be simple…

We go beyond understanding

and we know…

the deepest Truth

Renewable Force…

Breathing in…

A renewable force.

Energy and Existence…United

Daily…minute by minute.

Breath by breath.

I AM renewed.

I AM living.

I AM Breathed.

The force behind that which renews.. .

Is also Me.

Being the Rain…

***Update 7/2016

I have had this blog for years as “Notes from the Mat” and after reflection I decided I needed to update it and change the name.  This was inspired by coming to recognize the essence of my writing…which is primarily about chakras, energy and whatever “flows” and comes through.   During a training for Reiki at my studio I said “be the rain, let the energy flow”.  Since then it has become a mantra for our Reiki Practitioners.  It seems to fit for this blog as well…when I write it is often in spurts, drizzles or sometimes downfalls…I can’t force it to rain…I have to just let it rain and when it does I just collect it and often share it here.   So this site will include the usual style of writing …just an updated name.

 

Be the Rain…Namaste Kerry
